We have 2 baby Absynnian (fluffy hair) guinea pigs for sale to loving homes. Our guinea pigs are family pets and are played with daily by our 4 children aged 3-10. They are offered a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (leafy greens such as romaine, baby spinach, etc) as well as carrots, watermelon rind, green/red peppers, and small bits of fruit like apples every day.
PHOTOS 1&2 2 female sisters, 5 weeks old-these pictures were taken 3 weeks ago.3- our guinea pig cage , All the rest of the pictures are current today.
They eat a combination of timothy hay and guinea pig pellets.
The guinea pigs are housed in a very large, spacious, and well ventilated homemade C&C cage.
Guinea pigs make great pets for children because they are easy to care for, like sitting with their owners, freakishly cute, and have big personalities. They make a much easier and hardy pet than a smaller animal like a mouse, hamster, or gerbil. They will happily sit on your lap and eat treats, or cuddle up for a movie with you. They are big enough that you can let them roam and explore in your house (under supervision, of course) without fear of them getting lost.
That being said, they are a big commitment and live 5-7 years. Their cages need to be cleaned every week or they will smell bad. They eat suprising amounts of food and vegetables. They require more space than other smaller animals. Please do your research! Here are some good links when considering a guinea pig as a pet.
Here's a link to make your own cage at home. We made the large cage in the photos with probably $50 worth of materials at Rona.
Here's a tutorial, if you're interested.
Here's a link for a pre-made version of that type of cage, to save you the labour. https://www.amazon.ca/Mid-West-171GH-Midwest-Expandable-Habitat/dp/B001NJ0DPY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474816420&sr=8-1&keywords=guinea+pig+cage
GUINEA PIGS DO BEST WITH A PARTNER. Having 2 guinea pigs is not more work than having 1, please seriously consider having 2. They are herd animals and benefit greatly from at least one same sex cage mate.
We will sell a same sex pair for $30, or $20 each.
I can deliver anywhere in london for free, or you are welcome to visit our home. I can provide you with a bag of timothy hay and some pellets to start you off, if needed.
